Author information

  • 1Department of Pediatric Surgery, Tel Aviv Medical Center, Israel.

Abstract

Only 25 cases of unilateral abdominoscrotal hydrocele (ASH) and 3 of bilateral ASH have been reported since 1834. Fifteen infants with ASH were treated on a single pediatric surgery service during a period of 4 years, accounting for 1.7 per 1,000 outpatient visits. In 4 cases the defect was bilateral. Although this unusual concentration of cases in unexplained, recognition and careful documentation of ASH in infancy is recommended.
